Lord Janner: the State-serving Goddard inquiry is an affront to justice

Claims of his innocence?

No.

There is to be an…inquiry into why Lord Janner was never tried in court. An inquiry is the country’s default position for anything the elite want to moralise on. A “panel” will investigate “whether the 86-year-old Labour peeer was protected by an establishment cover-up”.

This way the elite get to bury the ghosts and no-one gets hurt. It is a State-serving affront to justice.

Daily Express (page 2) : “Sex abuse inquiry will review allegations against Lord Janner”

Will it be as big as the Leveson Inquiry into phone hacking and tabloid journalism? Will everyone who has ever known or worked with Janner be put on the stand? Will we see all the social workers, police and everyone who worked with Frank Beck, the LibDem councillor and convicted paedophile who ran children’s homes and lived in Braunstone, where Janner is titular Lord? Will it be televised? Will there be dawn raids and mass arrests?

Going after the tabloid ‘scum’ was easy for the pious politicians who seek to control a free Press. Going after those in power is not their calling.

Lord Janner will be the only living public figure under scrutiny as part of an independent inquiry that was announced in 2014. Justice Lowell Goddard, a New Zealand High Court judge, has been appointed to spearhead the review.

The inquiry was announced by the Home Secretary in the wake of the Jimmy Savile scandal to look at cases involving public personalities whose alleged sex crimes emerge after their deaths.

It will hear from Lord Janner’s alleged victims and witnesses and could force the former Labour MP to give evidence as well.

Alleged victims get to talk. The elite get to show us and them that they are listening. You can trust us now. We’re not like them. That was all in the past. And we’re digging up the dead, like Sir Cyril Smith and Sir Jimmy Savile, and beating their bodies with sticks.

As for “forcing” Lord Janner to speak, to what effect? He has dementia. His testimony is deemed to be unreliable. You can force a man to attend but you cannot force him to talk sense.
